PacOrd To Install

New Threat Upgrade

On Two Navy Cruisers

PacOrd, a member of the Phila- delphia-based SPD Technologies family of companies, has been se- lected to install the New Threat

Upgrade (NTU) on two CG-26 class cruisers.

NTU is designed to upgrade the

Anti-Warfare capabilities of the

U.S. Navy's older cruisers and guid- ed missile destroyers. It entails ex- tensive modernization of the Terrier

Missile system and replacement of the majority of the ship's search radar systems and Naval Technical

Data computer installations.

PacOrd has extensive experience with NTU, starting with the 1987 overhaul of the USS Mahan (DDG- 42), the Navy's prototype for NTU.

PacOrd's newest NTU jobs will be on board USS William H. Stand- ley (CG-32) at Northwest Marine

Iron Works in Portland, Ore., and

USS Wainwright (CG-28) at Metro

Machine in Norfolk, Va.

For nearly 40 years PacOrd has been an important full-service com- bat systems contractor supporting the U.S. Navy through private ship- yards, DoD contracting agencies and OEMs.
